The Mets Don't Learn

It seems that the Mets are content to spend this offseason acquiring mediocre old players instead of getting better or younger.
First the Mets resigned Moises Alou for $9 million, hoping he can play 100 games.
Then they gave $25 million to Luis Castillo who can't hit and can't run, and made big errors last year when his defense was supposed to help steady the sinking ship.
When they failed to get mediocre offensive catcher Yorvit Torrealba, the Mets instead traded for mediocre catcher Johnny Estrada.
While none of these are terrible moves (especially because we got rid of Mota), together they give me the impression that the Mets are not going to be better next year than they were this year.
And they are going to continue with their maddening refusal to give a young player a chance to play.
If the next move is signing Carlos Silva to fill up the back end of the rotation with a 14-14 record and a 5.00 ERA, I'm going to be furious.
